Anne Young reprises Our Town for hospice

The food will be great tasting and old fashioned with a down home feeling

Antics Theatre is preparing for their upcoming production of Thornton Wilder’s wonderful classic “Our Town”.  Anne Young had the pleasure of directing “Our Town” for Rivercity Players in 1988 at the Tidemark Theatre.  Young feels the time has come to do this old fashioned and sensitive play of the 1900s again.

All cast members are enjoying the script and getting a good feeling for how the daily lives of Grover’s Corners is.  There are 3 Acts: Daily Life, Love and Marriage and Death and Eternity.

“Our Town” is narrated by a Stage Manager and performed with minimal props and sets.  Costuming will be in keeping with the early 1900s.

Young has a personal reason for wanting to do Our Town. This past October her sister passed away.  The last days of her sister’s life were spent in the Victoria Hospice. Young loves what Hospice does for those in the last stages of their life and it is for this reason Young would like to support our town, Campbell River’s Hospice

Our Town will be a Dinner Theatre. The food will be great tasting and old fashioned with a down home feeling.  Our Town will be performed at the Willow Point Hall March 26 – 28. Tickets will go on sale in March – date to be announced.
